I have a satellite a215 s4697 laptop and the start up takes over 5 minutes. i am trying to figure if this is my wireless router (lynksys wireless g), my security software (ca) or my laptop. I have expanded the ram to 4g and my processor is 160 GHz. I don't think it should be this slow, am I wrong?

Try to elimate softwares on your startup folder. it is located on the start program. maybe you have a lot of software that starts up with your computer. maybe this would help or do a full system recovery to restore you computer back to its default settings.

1. What about the second experiment? Please test booting normally into another user account. You are not on a domain, and you can delete the account later.
Sorry about giving you the wrong link before.
2. In the meantime, try this. Open the System Configuration utility, uncheck all the items on the Startup tab, and reboot. How long does that take? More here..
Remember, these are only experiments. We are trying to identify the culprit.
